The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
okay. i dont like going on and on so im just going to go straight to the point. our team is looking for people with skill in texturing, modeling, and of course programming. these people can get involved in an experience the likes of which, when finished, could be equal to that of the Aether or the Betweenlands.
we're still in the brainstorming phase but this is a Passion Project, which means that all of us get to contribute it, and since 99.9% of the content takes place in a separate dimension, we can have as many people adding as many things as they want, as long as they play into the world building that is already in place and builds itself into the dynamics of the world.
here is the basic rundown of the world. (quoted from our doc)
A world with 2 extreme weather types. winter / summer. So half of the time it is summer, it’s hot, you can burn to death if you stay outside too long, plants flourish. The other half of the time it’s extreme winter, snowfall, snowstorms, plants die. Water has to be found within plants. (or by melting snow during the winter) Special plants can be extracted for their honeydew. Would serve as water.
Each season is 4,380,000 ticks
So summer lasts for 4,380,000 ticks and is extremely hot during the day, but goes down to more bearable temperatures during the night.
And winter lasts for 4,380,000 ticks and is extremely cold during the day, and even colder during the night. Do not go outside at night in winter without lots of gear.
However days/nights in the sleeping lands last for about twice the amount that they do in the overworld
Whenever the season changes from summer to winter or vice versa, or a new weather effect is incoming, you are given a warning on the top of your screen.
In the sleeping lands there are 2 new weather events planned so far:
The Scorch - only occurs during Summer, causes all wood, plant, and entities to catch on fire, the sky turns a fiery reddish orange and there is a haze effect. Also the only time that Solas Spirits spawn.
Blizzards - only occurs during the Winter, a large amount snow, coupled with dangerous rogue winds (which are really just entities that look like white puffs of smoke, make howling wind sounds, and fling you across the ground, effect can be negated with snowshoes) and very low visibility due to the sheer amount of snow in your face, when you are outside during a blizzard you are given slowness 1 and your temperature goes down super rapidly, temperature decrease can be slowed with some sort of fur pelt item, which would be equipable by other means than armor equipment (meaning it can go on over your armor)
so when you're in this new dimension you have 2 new bars you need to manage, temperature and water. if you get too hot (which happens by being exposed to the sky during the summer) you burst into flames, potentially burning to death if you fail to get your temperature down well enough. if you get too cold (by being outside in the winter without a heat source) then you may get hypothermia (be inflicted with slowness 2 and start taking damage) until you can get back up to comfortable temperatures. and then water, certain foods in the world can give you water, which when eaten or drank, will give you points in terms of water. you'll have to be diligent and manage both if you wish to survive"
